Who are the Nubians?

They lived over an African empire and gave their home region the name Nubia; however, they have remained in Egypt and continue to do so.They come to Egypt primarily to begin farming near the Nile because the soil around the Nile is extremely fertile for growing any kind of fruit or vegetable.
